How does Hercules dies.. Who kill him and why?

Deianeira, Hercules' wife, made him a shirt spread with the blood of a centaur whom Hercules had slain with an arrow. Before he died, the centaur gave his blood to Deianeira with the false promise that it would keep Hercules faithful to her. Deianeira, suspecting Hercules was in love with another woman, gave him the shirt. The Hydra poison in the blood burned Hercules' skin to the bone. However it could not kill him so he built a fire and burned himself in it. That, my friend, is why Hercules is dead.


Who was the girl that poisoned Hercules?

How does Hercules die why is he allowed onto mount Olympus?

Hercules' wife accidentaly kills him. The Centaur Nessus offered to take them across a river that they needed to cross. Nessus tried to kidnap Deianeira (he takes her across first) but Hercules kills shoots him with a poisoned arrow. Before dying, Nessus tells Deianeira to take some of his blood and save it in case Hercules becomes unfaithful (he said the blood would make him fall back in love with her). One day Deianeira gets told rumours about Hercules being unfaithful and makes him wear something (can't remember what) with the blood on it. As the blood is poisoned from the poison that killed the Nessus, Hercules died. Hercules is half God, so he was allowed to go to Mount Olympus and was set as a star (I think) by Zeus.

Did nessus kill Hercules?

Technically speaking, yes. As he lay mortally wounded by Hercules' arrow, poisoned with hydra venom, Nessus gave Deianira (Hercules' wife) his blood. He told her it was a love potion and advised her to use it on her husband if he ever proved unfaithful to her. One day, Deianira became jealous of her husband and another woman. She dipped a robe in the blood of Nessus and sent it to Hercules, thinking he would fall back in love with her. Instead, the hydra venom in Nessus' blood tortured Hercules. He was in so much pain that he built a funeral pyre and sat on it, begging everyone to light it and end his suffering. Someone eventually did, but that's another story.


What destroyed Hercules?

After Heracles shot the centaur, Nessus, because he tried to run off with his wife, Deianira, the centaur told her to collect some of his blood. He said if she was ever afraid of losing Heracles love, she should put some of the blood on his tunic and he will love her again. One day when Hercules was at a war, he called home for his best tunic. He wanted to celebrate with his men, but Deianira thought he was dressing up for a women. She painted the blood on his tunic and sent it off to Hercules. When he put it on, his skinned burned. The "love potion" turned out to be a mix of centaur blood and poison from the arrows. Since Hercules was so strong, the poison could not kill him. The pain was so great though, Hercules had his men build a funeral pyre. When Hercules climbed on, they sent fire to it. Before Hercules burned though, he was raised to Olympus, where he was made a god.


What type of blood puts Hercules in extreme pain?

This is going to be a complex answer. The Goddess Hera, wife of Zeus, hated Hercules as he was the illegitimate son of Zeus and a married woman. As Hera was the Goddess of Marriage and Matrimony and the Home and such things you can see how her offence might be particularly sharp. She tried to kill him ever since his birth. When Hercules was first married Hera set a bout of madness upon him and he killed his wife and children. As penance for these killings Hercules was set to perform twelve labours by his brother-in-law. The second of these labours was perhaps the most onerous. Hercules was sent to kill the Hydra and extremely poisonous monster that guarded on of the entrances to the underworld. The story and battle of that encounter is complex and deserves its own section. Suffice to say Hercules won and, being the clever man he was, dipped his arrows in the blood of the Hydra to make them poisonous as well. A long time later Hercules is again married, this time to a woman named Deianeira. One day they are travelling and need to cross a river. A centaur named Nessus offers to carry them across one at a time. He takes Deianeira first but instead of returning for Hercules runs off with Deianeira. Offended Hercules takes out one of his arrows and shoot the centaur dead. Dying Nessus tells Deianeira that his blood is magical and if Hercules ever proves unfaithful to her that an application of his blood will return Hercules to her. She believes him and keeps a bottle of his blood. Years later Hercules does in fact start to fancy other woman, so Deianeira smears Nessus' blood on a robe and has it sent to Hercules to wear. The plot here becomes rather complex, involves a couple of servants running after each other. but the result is Hercules dons the robes and proceeds to get eaten up by the Hydra's poison in Nessus' blood that came from the poisoned arrow Hercules shot into him. The story now gets a bit grotesque but ends up with Hercules burning himself to death on a funeral pyre.
